  • JIM CHALMERS MP SHADOW MINISTER FOR FINANCIAL SERVICES AND SUPERANNUATION SHADOW MINISTER FOR SPORT SHADOW ASSISTANT MINISTER FOR TRADE, INVESTMENT AND PRODUCTIVITY MEMBER FOR RANKIN RESPONSE TO THE MINISTERIAL STATEMENT ON PRODUCTIVITY   THURSDAY, 12 NOVEMBER 2015   *** CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY ***   I relish the opportunity to talk about productivity and the opportunity to respond to this ministerial statement.   Our economy is undergoing a very important transition away from one based on high prices for our commodities into one that must be increasingly based on the ability of our people to turn technological and other change to our personal and national advantage.   We have had a remarkable quarter century of economic growth, but that quarter century of growth will be in serious jeopardy unless we build new sources of opportunity and new ways to create jobs. As the Opposition Leader says, Australia's choice is between being a smarter nation or a poorer nation.   We have made good choices before in the 1980s, 1990s and during the GFC, which I mention not as some sort of nostalgic shibboleth but as a demonstration that good decisions are not beyond us in this country. Our history should be behind us pushing us forward, not in front of us pushing us back.   Good choices are within our reach. But if we get them wrong, if we focus on the wrong things, we can kiss goodbye the living standards which have been the hallmark of our recent history and a benchmark for the rest of the world.   Being smarter not poorer is really about being more productive. Productivity growth is what we need if we are to create wealth, to lift living standards in this country and to ensure there is enough opportunity and enough employment to go round.   There are all kinds of ways to slice and dice the data on productivity growth, but in essence the story is that in the 1980s we had terrible productivity growth at 1.3 per cent; in the 1990s it was terrific at 2.1 per cent; for the first decade of the 2000s it was 1.4 per cent, roughly where it is now; and the IGR forecasts use the long­term average of 1.5 per cent.   I do not have time to dig into all the reasons for our productivity performance or the influences on it, or to discuss the softness in productivity growth right around the world. But the point is this: we can argue about what is causing our current productivity growth of 1.4 per cent, but it is beyond argument that that kind of productivity performance is insufficient to maintain and advance Australian living standards.   Faced with this serious challenge, it is disappointing to see that the sum total of the
